But can't tell you this week's lottery numbers!
Jun 18th, 2014
I drastically under-trained for the London Marathon this April, but did it anyway without significant pain at the time. However, since then my left hip (and now knee too) has been getting worse – by now there is a dull ache almost all the time, made worse by sitting for long periods (not good as I do a lot of time sitting in airplanes).
The Guru Responded:
Lots of ideas, loads of solutions….
But I need some more information:
The more clues the better!
Becky answered the Guru’s questions:
And the Guru responded:
OK – Thanks. Some direct as to what’s what……
The deep inside your hip pain can be really (obviously!) characteristic of a true issue with your hip.However more frequently hip pain is a knock on effect of something else happening elsewhere, say an issue with your lower back which either refers pain it not your hip or the muscle stiffen up around your back and “over compress” your hip.
So, what’s the plan….due to age, poor training and a little over your fighting weight I think the first port of call is getting your hip x-rayed. Why? Well I don’t think anything is broken, but I think you may have overloaded your tissue in and/or around the joint itself. This maybe a simple stress reaction that needs rest and a bit of TLC and rehab, or irritated tissue like your labrum (like the cartilage of your knee), however this is better seen on MRI but first things first!
Avoid stretching and pulling it around, sort out the X-ray via your GP and then make sure you can go and see someone who can guide you in the right direction if your GP can’t.
